The Battisford Punch Bowl

The Punch Bowl Inn, Battisford was the first Public House in Suffolk to be managed by the Community, for the Community, with the aim of providing quality hospitality to both residents and visitors alike.

The Punch Bowl opened as a Community Inn in April 2011.

The pub is run by a combination of paid and volunteer staff, with many people contributing in different ways. The Battisford and District Garden Club kindly looks after the garden and hanging baskets. Without the hard work and dedication of the people involved and support from the local community, the pub would not be viable.

The community now benefits from a pub that serves a fine selection of beers and wines, and also a restaurant that serves great food. Monthly events include a Quiz night, Acoustic evenings and a Spice night. The pub also holds themed dining evenings, has live music regularly and is also supported by mens and womens darts matches. As a social centre the Punch Bowl provides a warm and welcoming location for all residents and their families. We are a Dog friendly Pub.

At the Punch Bowl we welcome your feedback, please feel free to get in touch here.
